At his X Games Austin Music Festival performance Yeezy skipped over the Jay Z lyrics in 'Cold' and 'Blood On The Leaves.'

It's come to light that Kanye West mysteriously chopped his lyrics referencing Jay Z during his recent performance at the X Games Austin Music Festival. 

Whilst performing 'Blood On The Leaves,' not only did 'Ye completely skip over the lyric 'Jay Z' in what should have said; "I don't give a damn if you used to talk to Jay Z/ He ain't with you, he with Beyoncé" but he also changed the lyric from "you need to stop acting lazy" to "you need to stop acting crazy" as Kanye West forum Kanyetothe.com points out.

Watch Kanye West's performance of 'Blood On The Leaves' above - the lyrics comes in around the three minute mark.

Below you can also hear Kanye omit referencing 'Jay' during 'Cold,' the lyrics should read; "Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team."

There was a lot of speculation that the 'Watch The Throne' collaborators could have fallen out following Beyonce and Jay Z's no-show at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's wedding in Florence last month. Could the two be related?
